Our customer reviews

We would all like to expand our knowledge of the world around us, but who has the time to do it? On these pages you will find everything you need to know about, well, everything. By combining original illustrations with jargon-free text, this book ensures that you'll soon be familiar with all of the most important facts of life: from the big bang and the evolution of human beings to the age of the Internet and the growth of social networking--it's all here. Everything you've ever wanted to know presented in a way that's easy to grasp Straightforward text and illustrations make even the most difficult subjects accessible Packed with helpful charts, graphs, and diagrams that make learning fun Brush up on all those things you wish you'd remembered from school--without sitting through the lectures Personal Thoughts: This book is very high quality. Very simplistic in the writing style which allows one to remember more and read less. Anything you want to know from Science, To Technology, to history, to communication etc.. I received this Ebook free from Baker & Taylor Publishing group to review. I can easily see this book being used for a general studies course for homeschooling or elsewhere. Now personally, and religiously I found it to be a bit off. Where referencing dates it leaned towards the long scale Evolutionary time frames for everything. But when referencing historical figures it has Jesus Christ listed and his bio included "Being the Son of God, dying for all humanity, and resurrection." Very unusual for a publisher to include Jesus. I appreciated that of this book. I can easily use it for my children and just temper the dates with some reality of the different theories of Evolution, Young earth and Old Earth Creation as well. So all in all a GREAT book for reference and learning. Oh and by the way do you know how a phone works, or Electric works? I do! Even have a better understanding of key laws and equations.show more
